Although the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) yesterday decided to change
its presidential candidate, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said her party has taken every variable into consideration and plans to continue to follow its original strategy.
“The DPP has shown solidarity, and everyone on the team has the same objective,” Tsai said in response to media queries.
“All of the party’s talent are in their respective positions, and we plan to put out our full efforts into the last 90-odd days left [in the election campaign] for our best performance,” she added.
Asked about the KMT’s possible plan to place Legislative Speaker Wang Jing-pyng (王金平) in first place on its at-large legislator list, Tsai said that the DPP considered the possibility of such events at the beginning of its campaign and carefully planned its strategy accordingly. [FULL STORY]
